.- Mari Carmen Dominguez, mother of Olga Bejano, the most famous paraplegic woman in Spain who died last December, said this week that the books she helped her daughter write have caused four people to change their minds about committing suicide.
âIt was worth it for Olga to write the books just for those people,â Dominguez said during the presentation of Olgaâs book, âAlas Rotasâ (Broken Wings), published in Madrid.
Olga was not able to see, speak, move or breathe without assistance. However, with much patience she was able to write four books which she scribbled out with the help of her nurse.
Dominguez recalled that after writing her first two books, âWe began to receive dozens of letters, hundreds a few months later, and thousands through the years.â âAmong them were letters from at least four people who shared a hair-raising experience: they had considered taking their own lives, and after reading Oglaâs books, they found a new joy for their existence.â
For this reason, she said Olgaâs mission was one of âbring people closer to God.â âI have no doubt God chose her for this mission, and the fruits have been innumerable,â she said.
